The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) partnered with Prosperity Now and its research partners to research financial well-being in America. The first phase of the research involved extensive interviews with working-age consumers, older Americans, and financial practitioners to develop a consumer-driven definition of financial well-being. The next phase of the project was to develop a measure of financial well-being that can be widely used by researchers and practitioners to help improve the financial lives of American consumers.
